You may have removed them on accident. While on the dashboard select the sheet in question and then click on the worksheet menu on the ribbon. Its the grey bar at the top. Go down to tooltip. One of the options here is to enable tooltips:
Try that first. After that I'm a bit unsure but with a sample workbook I'll take a look at it. It may be hard to recreate an error if we don't know the exact steps after all.
Just check the steps what @carlslifer have mentioned. it Might be the issue
Its related to dashboard layout thing. Suppose you have 2 worksheets overlapping each other and you are using parameter values to drive each of them.
-> Worksheets: Worksheet1 and Worksheet 2
-> Parameter: Metric to view
-> Parameter values: Sales, Acquisitions
Worksheet1 is related to Sales
Worksheet2 is related to Acquisitions
In the dashboard, both these worksheets are exactly overlapped.
Suppose Worksheet1 is on the top of Worksheet2, and if you select Sales parameter, then graph and tooltip of Worksheet1 both are displayed. But, when you select Acquisitions, only Worksheet2 graph is displayed (unavailable).
Similarly, Worksheet2 is on the top of Worksheet2, and if you select Acquisitions parameter, then graph and tooltip for Worksheet2 both are displayed. But, when you select Acquisitions, only Worksheet1 graph is displayed (tooltip becomes unavailable).
This seems to do something with the layout as graphs are overlapped.
Thats not the issue though. Thanks for the suggestion!
I have replied to Carl with the exact issue.

This is extremely confusing. Remember we can't see your workbook. If there's anything on top of a worksheet, another worksheet, a blank sheet, an image, etc. You cannot see the tooltip underneath. I'd recommend changing your layout so that you are not overlapping sheets. I would recommend doing this instead: https://www.interworks.com/blog/rrouse/2015/07/07/how-create-dynamic-tableau-dashboard-layouts-sliding-containers
This will let you have two different sheets and only one seemingly active at a time.
